NOTIFIER NCA2/NFS2-3030 DESCRIPTION
The NCA2/NFS2-3030 Serial driver allows the FieldServer to record data from Notifier NCA2 or NFS2-3030 panels
over RS-232 as per NFS2-3030/NCA-2 EIA-232 Protocol & Data Formats 53219 Rev A 1/3/2008. There is no active
polling by this driver; the communications are one-way through the panel's printer or CRT port. The FieldServer
acts as a Client; receives messages and records the status of a Panel. The panel MUST output messages in160
characters ASCII format in English.
This driver is not capable of emulating a Notifier NCA2 or NFS2-3030 panel.
The NCA2 controls all the devices (e.g. 3030, 640 panels) connected on the Notifier network. Each Fire Alarm
Panel on Network is considered as a Node. 240 Nodes can exist on one network. NFS2-3030 can exist on a
network or be self-standing.
NCA2 interacts with other Fire Alarm Panels, records the status of the panels and sends the events to printer and
CRT ports. FieldServer captures these events in text form, parses and stores them in Data Arrays. These Data
Arrays can be monitored by third party tools. Since the FieldServer does not actively poll for data, the accuracy
and timeliness of the stored data is limited to the frequency of update messages that the Notifier Fire Panel issues.
If a networked panel does not send the 'CLEARED' message for latched points via the NCA2 it is not possible to
detect cleared points unless a system reset is done. It is possible to configure the FieldServer to clear on reset
message from NCA2. See Appendix A.4 for more detail.
Please note that the FieldServer can be configured with a large number of points. The point limits purchased with
the FieldServer prevent the entire database from being accessed in any one application. It is therefore strongly
advisable to ensure that only the point addresses of interest are configured, and that the FieldServer is purchased
with the correct point count.
The types of Notifier messages supported by this driver are summarized in Section 4.1. A detailed table presented
in Appendix A.1 shows each type of NCA2/NFS2-3030 message the FieldServer recognizes and the effect that it has
on the status of the points in the Data Array.

Hardware Connection Tips / Hints
•
The FieldServer should preferably be connected to the TB5 Printer port. It is theoretically possible to
connect to the TB5 CRT port, but this has not been fully tested.
•
The Panel’s port must be enabled and set to 80 Columns Not Supervised.

CONFIGURING THE FIELDSERVER AS A NOTIFIER NCA2/NFS2-3030 CLIENT
For a detailed discussion on FieldServer configuration, please refer to the FieldServer Configuration Manual. The
information that follows describes how to expand upon the factory defaults provided in the configuration files
included with the FieldServer (See “.csv” sample files provided with the FieldServer).
This section documents and describes the parameters necessary for configuring the FieldServer to receive
information from a Notifier Panel.
4.1
Panel Status - Memory Mapping
The primary purpose of this driver is to record the status of devices connected to the Notifier panel by interpreting
the text messages sent to the printer or CRT port. Not all messages will be interpreted, as many messages do not
directly pertain to device status, or are not currently supported. The following subset of event messages is
recognized:
Active Events:
FIRE ALARM
SECURITY ALARM (LIFE)
LIFE CRITICAL ALARM
MEDICAL EMERGENCY
SECURITY ALARM
CRITICAL PROCESS
SUPERVISORY
TROUBLE/ FAULT
DISABLED
PREALARM
ACTIVE
ON/ OFF
This Driver divides the memory into various types. Each location in each memory type is assigned an address. It is
therefore possible to map an address to a particular offset in a Data Array and make it accessible for reading by
other connected devices. The address structure is provided in Table 1.
Most of these addresses will only contain binary information to represent an active or inactive state.
Where multiple troubles are associated with a single device the addressed register corresponding to that device
will be incremented as a counter for each trouble message and decremented when a trouble is cleared. These
addresses should preferably be stored in SINT16 format in the Data Array.

Data Arrays/Descriptors
The configuration file tells the FieldServer about its interfaces, and the routing of data required. In order to enable
the FieldServer for Notifier NCA2/NFS2-3030 communications, the driver independent FieldServer buffers need to
be declared in the “Data Arrays” section, the destination device addresses need to be declared in the “Client Side
Nodes” section, and the required data from Notifier Panels needs to be mapped in the “Client Side Map
Descriptors” section. Details on how to do this can be found below.
Note that in the tables, * indicates an optional parameter, with the bold legal value being the default.

Appendix A.3. Node Status
•
Data for any particular Node is valid while that Node is online and the system is synchronized. Integrity of
data for any Node will be lost if the Node goes offline or if synchronism between the FieldServer and the
NCA2 Panel is lost.
•
Node status offline/online (1/0) is stored in the 502
before reading any information about the Node.
•
Node status data integrity itself depends upon system synchronization.
nd
address. It is important to read the Node status
Appendix A.4. FieldServer Synchronization
There is currently no method of auto-synchronizing the FieldServer's Data Arrays with the Notifier NCA2/NFS23030 panel because there is no method for polling the panel through the printer or CRT port. Synchronization of
the two devices can be achieved manually pressing the “System Reset” button on the panel while the FieldServer is
connected and running. All current events will be re-sent to the FieldServer..

Page 19 of 22
Appendix A.5. Driver Limitations and Exclusions
•
Zone information will not be recorded.
•
To synchronize the FieldServer with the panel, connect the running FieldServer and press the “System
Reset” button on the panel. All current events will be re-sent to the FieldServer.
•
The port must be enabled on the unit and set to 80 columns with NO supervision
•
All data related to non-event driven reports will not be recorded by the FieldServer
•
This driver was written as a subset of NFS2-3030/NCA-2 EIA-232 Protocol & Data Formats 53219 Rev A
1/3/2008. Any changes or additions by Notifier will not be reflected in this driver unless specifically
revised.
•
This driver will not record information about zone status that is incorporated with point status messages.
•
There can only be one panel connected to any given FieldServer port.
•
This driver records data as presented to the printer/CRT port by the Notifier panel, and can only be as
accurate as this data.
•
The driver cannot send messages to the Notifier panel.
•
Driver will clear any data on “System Normal” only if this data is previously set by driver and is not yet
cleared by “Cleared” message and is configured to Clear_on_Normal. By default Clear_on_Normal is
“yes”.
•
Driver will clear any Node data on “System RESET” only if this data is previously set by driver and is not yet
cleared by “Cleared” message and is configured to Clear_on_Reset. By default Clear_on_Reset is “no”.

Appendix B. Troubleshooting tips
Appendix B.1. Connection Tips & Hints
•
Communication errors will be experienced if the port is disabled at the panel. Please check the Notifier
Manuals on how to enable the panel port connected to the FieldServer and ensure that it is set to 80
columns NO supervision.
•
If connecting the Panel to one of the FieldServer RS-232 ports causes the FieldServer to reboot, then an
Optical Isolator is required to balance ground potential problems.
Appendix B.2. Networking Tips
•
By default FieldServer does not take any action on receiving a “SYSTEM RESET”. Normally when a Node
initiates “SYSTEM RESET” by pressing the “RESET” button on the Panel, the panel sends an individual
“CLEAR” message for every point, it clears in its memory area. The FieldServer therefore waits for the
“CLEAR” message to clear a specific bit in its memory for a particular Node or for the “SYSTEM NORMAL”
message to clear all bits in its memory for every Node. Use Clear_on_Reset parameter if required.
•
It may be advisable to configure the Notifier panel to suppress less important “Supervisory” or “Trouble”
messages which could prevent the generation of “SYSTEM NORMAL” messages. Consult Notifier for this
configuration or recommendation.
•
Ensure that every Node is working with a printer or HyperTerminal, before calling FieldServer for Support.

Most error messages are associated with errors in parsing an incoming message from the Notifier panel. The most
likely cause is a mismatch in expected message format. The driver will flag one of the following error messages
and continue. In most cases the message currently being processed by the driver will also be printed so that any
problems can be easily diagnosed.
Two screens ‘System Errors’ and ‘Driver Messages’ exist for displaying errors.
The System Error Screen displays the error number and the Driver messages screen displays the error number,
description and the message received from the NCA/NCA2 Panel.
In debug mode the System Error screen will also include Driver messages.
The following Error Messages appear upon the ‘System Errors’ Screen
•
%d means numeric number
•
%s means string
Messages number 1, 3, 4 and 5 will be displayed just once if generated after rebooting or power cycling the
FieldServer.

Description
Action
The FieldServer got a recognized
message on this particular port, Node,
loop, Address_Type and Address but
did not find a defined Map Descriptor.
To capture this data, add a new Map
Descriptor with the required parameters.
This driver keeps track of all non-zero
memory locations per Map Descriptor.
When the track queue is full, the oldest
offset is overwritten with the latest
one. This could be a problem on
System_Reset and System_Normal
where memory locations get cleared as
per this queue.
The
FieldServer
received
an
unrecognized event or corrupted
message.
The FieldServer received a Node
Trouble event not listed under
Appendix A.2 or a corrupted message.
The FieldServer received a message
that a Node either connected or
disconnected from the network, but no
Node number was received - it is likely
that the message was corrupted
If the error occurs during installation or
testing, it can be ignored. If the error
occurs during field operation, configure the
Map Descriptor with required address
ranges only and keep the Map Descriptor
length smaller than the queue length.
If the error occurs continuously, check that
connection parameters match with panel
port settings.
If this error occurs continuously and you
need this new trouble status, contact
FieldServer.

Description
A message was received from an
unsupported device or the address of
the device is not in the correct
format/location.
The driver attempted to decrement the
trouble counting number to a number
less than 0.

Action
Call Tech support.
This occurs due to poor synchronization
between the FieldServer and the Notifier
panel or because a problem existed before
3
connection. . It will rectify itself upon
“System Normal” message. Check the
configuration file to identify the address
and memory area type mapped to this
offset and the Data Array which is causing
the error.
3
All Data Arrays on the FieldServer are initialized to zero on rebooting or starting up. A zero value in the Data Array assumes no problems with
the devices, but if a problem existed before the startup and the device comes out of problem, the FieldServer will attempt to decrease the
number of problems by 1 and this generates the error. Data from the FieldServer should not be considered reliable until the “System Normal”
message has been returned.
